Default setting from address in outlook mail item

Hello all,

I am getting problem to set "from address" in outlook mail item. My task is to copy mails from a existing mailing system ( which stores all the mail in SQL server database) to outlook.

While creating the mail, everything works fine except i can not assign from address.

After creating a mail, when viewed in outlook, i can not see the from address.

Any idea???


Below is my code
Set objNewMail = golApp.CreateItem(olMailItem)

With objNewMail
       .Body = "hello"
       Set a = .Recipients.Add("[email protected]")
       a.Type = olOriginator
       Set a = .Recipients.Add("[email protected]")
       a.Type = olTo
       .Subject = "hello"
       .Move gnspNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
End With

Hi Bishnu,

the steps in the book assumes you are working with an MS Exchange server. if you are using another mail server, then I cannot help you, unfortunately.
